Welcome, Chokri.

That's an amazing looking garden you have. How do you tend it? Do you ascribe to any specific methodologies?

I have been using chicken manure for many years to fertilize my garden, and the result is so good with an healthy and productive garden!

It looks that way!

Could you give us some more details? How big is your garden? Where are you in the world, and what are your climate challenges? I see some luffa, I think, and some cherry or plum tomatoes, right? What else do you grow?

Also, are they your chickens? If so, do you grow their feed or forage?

The pictures are lovely. Thank you for sharing. More are always appreciated.

Keep us posted, and good luck.

-CK

Growing Luffa SpongeGrowing luffa sponges in your garden is a fun and rewarding, luffa requires patience and a long growing season.

Your garden is gorgeous! I tried growing luffa for the first time this year but I don't believe any of the seeds came up and I think my season might be too short. Then again I had also almost given up on peppers and have a few fruiting right now so maybe I'll try again next year. :)

This is a beautiful Space Chokri!  Well done.  I imagine Tunisia has a brutal climate but you seem to have figured it out.

Tunisia's climate is hot-summer Mediterranean climate. Tunisia consists of two climatic belts, with Mediterranean influences in the north and Saharan in the south!

Very inspiring because I didn't think Mediterranean climates could be lush. How do you deal with the problem of water since you have very hot, dry summers with no rainfall (I assume)?

This is my main problem with South Australia. I have wonderful winters full of rain and everything grows by itself, but rain stops in Spring and doesn't return until Autumn. Everything just dies easily here in summer from the extremely hot dry sun.

From June to September it can be hot, when the temperature can exceed 40 °C (104 °F). The rains follow the Mediterranean pattern on the coast, so they are more abundant in late autumn and winter, and become very rare in late spring and summer.
